A lack of leadership today.
Not the usual lack of Leadership, really just a lack of "leaders." All we know is that T.Aldous has scribbled a note on the board to say that they're all at Primrose House. Doing what, why and if/when they'll be back we do not know.
Luckily, we are information professionals and word from the Town Hall is that they've joined in with "the second corporate management conference." As we were all entirely unknowing of a first one, let alone any outcomes or consequences, we are a little bemused so my source passes on the gen.
As soon as we find out the conference is entitled "Communication, Co-operation and Customer Focus" we start to lose it a bit. By the time we get to the bit about "creating a league of nations within the council" we were rolling around the floor with mirth. If we ever see the agenda or supporting material they'll be taking us out on stretchers.
